No more glass in bars/restaurants?

By sdcno1 10 March 2011 21

I went out for a meal last night to suburban restaurant and ordered a beer (Asahi) with my meal. I was intrigued when I received a aluminium can in the shape of a bottle, twist top and all. I asked the waiter about this peculiar object and he told us that they have to replace glass bottles come June when new legislation is passed. We had a conversation about what his establishment is doing to replace the glasses for mixed spirit drinks – with plastic cups.

I haven’t heard anything about this but I recall some victims of glassing attacks calling to ban glasses in nightclubs in NSW last year. I don’t think glassing attacks are out of control in the ACT so why is this occurring?

Does anyone have any more info about this?

What’s Your opinion?

You’d have to be very ill to overpower the taste of a lagavulin.

I tried it once, and thought it tasted like urine. And not just that weak, had-too-many-beers-need-to-take-a-slash-in-the-park urine, but that flourescent yellow I-must-have-sleepwalked-and-eaten-a-whole-packet-of-berrocas-in-the-night type urine.

But hey, maybe I’m just a bogan who doesn’t get it.

(Yes, you have permission to do something with that last bit)

As one who has been appreciating fine malts for over 30 years I feel required to take great umbrage at the maltist comments in this thread.

The Islay malts (I’m sipping a Bowmore right now) are one of the things that make our sojourn on this ball of dust slightly bearable.

And if you think Lagavulin is overpowering, I recommend you try a drop of Laphroaig. Now there’s a tipple that should be approached with caution. My daughter has to leave the room when I have a glass of it in my hand due to the strength of the aroma.
